Did you hear the piece on NPR yesterday about Twitter and Iran?


I found the whole 'RT' thing pretty interesting - and this morning have followed (on the NPR site) some of the 'tweets' re:Iran. Rocks indeed. I think that what is going on over there and the outcome (almost whatever it is) is one of the most powerful things I've seen in awhile.

I'm not into the whole Twitter thing, and while the NPR piece still suggested that text messages/phone calls are still the main method of communication - the 'tweets' for this thing sure make for a compelling and powerful background to a major event. I almost think of it as data - each tweet is an individual data point, and when one evaluates it using the appropriate statistics, one starts getting an image of what is happening.

ps Party sounds fun!
